Lexington, KY, USA
This position is for the 2020-2021 Academic Year and will begin Spring semester.
Peer Tutors assist fellow undergraduates in UK courses through Transformative Learning’s Peer Tutoring Program at The Study. There are no appointments and tutoring is offered in small, informal groups. Peer Tutors help tutees fully understand concepts, complete assignments, and study for exams. Peer Tutors are responsible for greeting tutees and making them feel welcome and included, providing guidance in course content, and helping tutees hone study skills and strategies.
Peer Tutors guide tutees to deeper understandings of course material and are never expected to give answers or replace course instructors.
Peer Tutors receive extensive training in preparation for being effective peer tutors, so no prior tutoring experience is needed.
Because the Peer Tutor position is a professional position, it includes responsibilities beyond working regular shifts, including professional development sessions, performance evaluations, regular team meetings, and promotional activities.
PLEASE NOTE: By applying to this position you will automatically be considered for any Peer Tutor position with Transformative Learning, for which you are qualified. You do not need to apply to multiple positions.
